Staying Connected #46

We quilt on, as the winter weather changes daily – and often hourly – outside our windows!

From Linda R … Here is what I’ve been working on. This Temecula quilt is based on a 1760 vintage quilt made by Mary Parker for her wedding. Sheryl, the owner of Temecula Quilt Company in southern California, is calling her version “Timeless Tidbits.”

I am presently working on the hourglass 2-1/2 inch blocks. The quilt contains 396 of them. I just love vintage.

From Sharon R … Another quick baby quilt with tiny Noah’s Arks and with flannelette animal fabric on the back.

From Barb M … My improv finished. At last! Putting the pieces together was also a fun part.

Barb learned how to make this quilt in a guild workshop.

From Chris … Two UFOs finished. The first one is 35″ x 45″ and the second one is 40″ x 47″.

Both of these have been using up scraps of fabric.

From Linda F … This is what I was working on during our recent SOS day.

The I Spy Alzheimer’s quilt is finally done. A number of members generously contributed some pieces of fabulous material for the project.

Thanks go out to Connie, Sonia B, Glennis and Anne R.

From Moira … I just completed this baby quilt I sewed for our Charity Quilts on the Sunshine Coast. This is a Missouri Quilt pattern called Zip It.
